Parent Teacher Association (PTA)
The Winchester School Parent Teacher Association, (PTA), is a group of passionate and supportive people whose common goal is to enhance every child’s learning experience whilst at Winchester School. We support the children of Winchester School with ongoing fundraising for resources and activities, supporting school events, and fostering relationships from all parties within our school community.
Meetings are held twice a term in the school staffroom - please check the school newsletter for our upcoming meeting dates.
New members are always welcomed and encouraged. It is a great way to meet new people, to gain an insight into how our school operates and to help our kids.
If you would like to help out from time to time, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org , the success of the PTA relies on the continual support from our school community.
